Latest outbreak numbers at those three facilities were unavailable over the weekend.

A full COVID-19 update online and from Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Deena Hinshaw is expected on Monday.

Hinshaw took to Twitter Sunday saying the province is at a critical point in the pandemic.

“We all have a say in how we’ll fare in the weeks and months ahead,” tweeted Hinshaw. “The targeted measures introduced last week include a number of actions that you and your household can take.”

On Thursday, Premier Jason Kenney announced new restrictions, halting indoor team sports and group fitness activities in the Edmonton and Calgary Zones as well as Fort McMurray, Lethbridge, Red Deer and Grande Prairie until Nov. 27. Choir, dance and theatre groups are also temporarily on hold.

Bars, restaurants and lounges in areas where there are more than 50 cases per 100,000 people have to stop serving alcohol at 10p.m. and close by 11 p.m.

Faith organizations have to limit their services to one-third capacity.

Kenney and Hinshaw have both repeatedly urged Albertans to not have guests over to their homes. They warn more restrictive measures could be coming if the spread of the virus is not slowed.
